One of us is Lying by Karen McManus - Book Review

One of Us is Ling by Karen McManus
Reviewed by Amanda Kennedy on March 1st, 2017
Published by Delacorte Press

We're just entering the second quarter of 2017 and I already know that One of Us is Lying will become a standout book of the year.

Described as a cross between The Breakfast Club and Pretty Little Liars, this YA thriller focuses on a group of 5 high school students, strangers to each other at the start of the narrative, attending an after-school detention. By the end, these students know each other much more intimately...

But only four of them emerge from the detention alive.

I loved this book from start to finish. The characters were so well fleshed out, their narratives believable, though of course with so many twists and turns we cannot fathom the big reveal until it is presented to us. And what a twist it was! I have read many mystery/thriller stories, though can honestly say One of us is Lying really kept me guessing!

Make sure you read this book, no matter what your taste in fiction. You won't be disappointed!

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars.
